AmaWaterways Responds to COVID-19 Testing Requirement Lifting for International Air Travelers’ U.S. Entry


WHAT                 In response to the announcement on Friday, June 10, that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has lifted its requirement for international air travelers to receive a negative COVID-19 test to enter the U.S. effective Sunday, June 12, AmaWaterways’ Co-founder and Executive Vice President Kristin Karst released the following statement:


“The removal of the COVID-19 testing requirement for international air travelers entering the U.S. is a very positive step in allowing the world to return to normal. With health and safety continuing to stay top-of-mind, this move will further allow people to more freely participate in activities, like international travel that brings such joy and rejuvenation by reuniting with loved ones and embracing new experiences. There is a huge pent-up demand in the United States for international travel and we expect our river cruise sales for the remainder of 2022 to experience a considerable boost from this news.”
